Funded under: FP6-CITIZENS

Abstract

The present report was prepared in the context of the STREP "the Moving Frontier: The Changing Geography of Production in Labour Intensive Industries" - MOVE", which was funded by the first call of proposals. It addresses research area 4 - The implications of European integration and enlargement for governance and the citizen. The main objectives of this project are:
- To examine the consequences that European enlargement has had and will have upon the enterprise strategies in labour intensive industries.
- To assess whether European enlargement will exacerbate inequality between, as well as, within regions heavily dependent upon labour-intensive industries.
- To identify instances of successful adjustment of enterprises and regions to the changing global environment.
- To assess the appropriateness of existing policy initiatives and governance structures, at the European, national and regional level.
The findings are expected to facilitate the decision-making process regarding policy intervention both for existing and new Member States, as well as for those outside
the EU.
